That doesn't really remove it. It just "hides" it. Microsoft's way of removing it.

They don't like allowing users to fully remove software with Windows because they say it breaks the operating system. It was their excuse to get away with forcing Internet Explorer on everyone, and still is.

i know how to permentantly remove all microsoft software and it doesn not involve fdisk or format. But it may result in an unsuable computer.

C4 or a TOW Missile, or when these can't be found just douse the case in lighter fluid and chuck a match at it :)
